The United States launched an airstrike following a suicide bombing at Kabul airport earlier this week. The target of the drone strike, believed to have been killed with no known civilian causalities, was an ISIS-K fighter believed to be involved in the planning future attacks, according to two U.S. defense officials.
The US military says it has killed an ISIS-K planner in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. According to the US officials, the target was planning to attack US officials in Kabul airport. A UAV took off from an unnamed base in the Middle East and reportedly hit the target while he was in a car with another associate. It’s reportedly the first UAV strike launched by the United States from outside Afghanistan.
“U.S. military forces conducted an over-the-horizon counterterrorism operation today against an ISIS-K planner,” Captain Bill Urban, spokesman for U.S. Central Command, confirmed Friday night. “The unmanned airstrike occurred in the Nangahar Province of Afghanistan. Initial indications are that we killed the target. We know of no civilian casualties.”
The statement did not identify the target of the attack, or what role a “planner” has in the group. It is unclear whether the planner was involved in Thursday’s attack.
But because of little or no information about the “leader” they killed people started speculating that Biden needed a win and he invented one!
Photos that have been released by an Afghan news organization show the place where the drone strike occurred but show no human remains at all!
